Did you know that pigs are smarter than dogs? In fact, pigs even outperform human children on cognitive tests!
Some other pig facts:
Pigs see and dream in colour.
Pigs enjoy listening to music and mother pigs will sing to their young while nursing
Pigs make nests to sleep in and will make them for their friends (even if those friends happen to be human)!
Pigs can play video games.
Pigs are naturally slender. They only become fat when humans overfeed them.
Pigs are sociable. They like to cuddle and snuggle up, nose to nose, with their friends as they sleep
In the wild, and on sanctuaries, pigs live in matriarchal societies, as elephants do.
Pigs are hygienic. When given the chance, they are more particular about their sanitary behavior than most dogs. They will not, unless locked inside a factory-farm cage, defecate anywhere near their living space.
Pigs roll in mud to cool down and ward off parasites and sunburn, just as elephants do.
